I have a 1/2 ton Chevy Pick Up Truck. I am considering installing a aftermarket set of 3 leaf adjustable load control springs. I pull a dual axle car hauler with my truck. I am not having any problems pulling my hauler with my stock 1/2 ton suspension. But when I first bought this truck it did have a set of aftermarket single helper leafs installed and it seamed to handle much better untill one side snapped. So of course I had to remove the other. The set I am currently considering are a 3 leaf / 2500 lb load capacity. Which may be a bit overkill but, I should be able to load my truck with out ever having to worry about overloading it. It also has a aftermarket rear stabilizer bar currently installed on it. The truck does handle nicely! Will these load control springs I am contemplating installing have any derogatory or adverse effects on handling?
